rather than the blowjobs to javlins through the most important member, this question is probably a better one and maybe more difficult..

im going to go for Death metal, but im getting into Black metal a hell of a lot now.... probably going to order satyricons back catalouge today.. been a while since i got some decent albums

I like both, but I lean more towards death.

I concur with AP1.

^ Agreed man, the latest black metal is the biggest pile of shit I've heard in a while (most of it anyway), as long as theres pilage and rape to turn into lyrics, death metal will still continue to churn out brutality.

as much as i like death, u just cant beat good old fashion black metal. although alot of it is crap theres still some real good black out there.

I'm voting for Death Metal. But I will say that black metal influenced death metal is the shiznit!

Merely because of its variety as far as subgenres: death.

Deathcore FTW!

Sorry, couldn't resist :-)

I am not such a big fan of either of the pure genres. But I thoroughtly enjoy these combinations:

1. thrashing death metal
2. melodic death metal
3. atmosphieric black metal
4. blackened thrash
5. blackened death metal
6. groove-based death metal

Oh you'd best be trolling DB!

I'll go with death metal. I'm not a huge fan of either genre but there's a few death metal bands I really like, whereas unless you include Venom and Mercyful Fate, I don't really like any black metal acts.

I'm with DB, the straight Death and Black genres are equally rubbish to me. Add a little something, tho - groove, thrash, technical, prog, melodic, etc etc, and I usually quite enjoy it.

This is a hard choice. Isn't this why Blackened Death Metal was formed? Black and Death Metal go together like Peanut Butter and Chocolate!

Nothing better then some straight old school death metal!

DM ftw i just like way to many DM bands over any BM bands and lets face it when is the last time a good BM album came out?

I like it when both mix with other genres and when they both mix with each other, but Hell, if I had to choose either or, I couldn't. It depends how I feel at a certain time as to which sounds better. I love em both.

That's a tough one, I love both. Just depends on the day.
